Preseason football: Sunlake 44, Ridgewood 0

LAND O'LAKES — Flashy long runs and a sufficient passing attack added up to an impressive preseason performance by Sunlake in a 44-0 rout of Ridgewood on Thursday night at Seahawk Stadium.

"We have been working all summer together and it just feels good to show what we can do up to this point," Sunlake quarterback Jacob Jackson said.

Big plays came early and often from junior running back Jamal Jones (126 all-purpose yards), as he took a shovel pass from Jackson (134 yards passing, 84 yards rushing) and managed to weave his way 41 yards for the Seahawks' first touchdown.

After a couple Ridgewood punts, Sunlake added another touchdown on the ground from fullback Craig King. Almost instantly after the Rams got the ball back, quarterback Scott Kujak threw a lateral pass that was picked up by Seahawks linebacker Kyle Fraser and returned 15 yards. That gave Sunlake a 21-0 lead through the first quarter.

The Seahawks varsity added a couple more touchdowns before giving way to the junior varsity, which tacked on a score in the fourth quarter.

Rams running back Cameron Rodriguez and linebacker Ralphy Dawkins sat out the game for unspecified reasons.

"It's a good start but we are still 0-0," Sunlake coach Bill Browning said. "We have some things we can improve on so we will get back to work (Friday)."
